Why Can’t I?

Woof, woof, woof?

“Where are we going”?

Doc asks Little T as she puts on her silly wooly hat.

“We are going to the beach!”says T.


Yay!  Barks Doc.

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

But this isn’t our beach!  Doc says looking around.

“Oh Doc, this is another beach called Trebarwith Strand!”  Explains little T.

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

Why can’t we go to our beach?  Says Doc whinging.

“Because it’s nice to go to different places! And it’s beautiful here!” Says little T raising her hands dramatically.


Yes!  Doc gives an excited little bark but stops and looks at little T’s parents.

“Woof, woof, woof?”

“But why do they have to be with us?”

“Oh Doc”, little T sighs , “because I’m only three, and not a grown-up yet”.

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

But it’s so much fun when it’s just you and me!

“I know” little T agrees, but we also have fun with my mum and Dada too!”

Woof, woof, woof, woof, woof!

“Yes, but your Dad grumble, grumbles!”

“Oh that’s just my Dada.  He likes to grumble, grumble, all Dads are like that”

Woof, woof, woof!

“C’mon, let’s go exploring!”

“Wait, I have to jump in muddy puddles first!”  Says little T enjoying her lovely puddles.



Woof, woof, woof!

“This is lovely! So much new smells!”

Woof, woof, woof, woof!

“Don’t just sit there!  Let’s go and explore more!”

“I’m tired from jumping on all those muddy puddles.  I want to rest now”  Says little T sitting on a bench.

Woof, woof, woof!

But, but, but, I want to explore NOW!  Whinges Doc.

“You will just have to wait” Little T says firmly.



Woof, woof, woof!

“Can we go down there please?”

“No.  We can’t it’s high tide!”


Boo says Doc slumping down beside Little T.

Woof, wood, woof?

Can I have some of that too?

“Oh Doc, this isn’t for puppies!”

Woof, woof, woof!

“It’s not fair!”

“Mum says life isn’t fair.  So there you go!”  Says T.

Woof, woof, woof!

“Can I have some?”  Doc says wagging his tail.

“No.  This isn’t for puppies either”.

Woof, woof, woof!

Now you are just being silly!

“Like this?”

Little T pulls her silly face at him.

Doc turns his back on her.

Woof, woof, woof.

“I want to go home now”

“In awhile, you’ll just have to wait”  Little T says in a grown-ups voice.

Woof, woof, woof!

“It’s not fun anymore!”

“Tough” says T.

    Trebarwith is lovely and so are the views from The Port William! As you say it is nice to go somewhere new and we are lucky in Cornwall to have so many fab beaches to visit. Love the face pulling from T in the last photo and Doc’s hopeful look for some chocolate. Thanks for linking up and sharing your bracing walk with Country Kids.

    • Yes, Trebarwith is lovely and I agree with you. We are spoilt with breathtaking views, walks, and beaches down here in Cornwall 🙂

    so funny, I love T and her adventures with Doc and that she loves her puddles and wears the cutest beanies ever and does she have an accent? I just wish I could hear her little voice. Love your friend Tracie

    • You’re so cute Tracie! 🙂 Yes, she does have a little accent. I like to tease her about it sometimes. I’m more familiar you see with the American accent, so till now I sometimes get startled to hear her speak. Haha. How weird is that? ;p
